A day of sunshine and joy awaited Bishop Brian as he arrived on the Isle of Barra to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with fifteen young Catholics from various parts of the island. Three of the children are pupils at Eoligarry School and the others attend Castlebay Community School. The service took place in the Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea.
